The trial for the alleged adjustment of the Levante-Zaragoza has been suspended this morning after the statement of former granota coach Luis García Plaza . Judge Manuel Aleis has not taken a statement from the rest of the witnesses cited for the non-appearance of the lawyer of Agapito Iglesias , admitted to a hospital.
The magistrate has considered "evident" that the trial could not continue in the absence of the defense of one of the defendants and has appointed a coroner to recognize the sick lawyer and determine when the hearing can be resumed, the next date of which is scheduled for September 25th.
For this day, the testimonies of former Levante coach Luis García, Real Valladolid coach Sergio González , the referee of the match, Fernández Borbalán , and the AFE lawyer in 2011, Santiago Nebot , were planned.
The judge has taken, as an exceptional case, a statement to Luis García because the coach directs Beijing Renhe of China and there were difficulties to return at another time.
Denies receiving envelopes
García Plaza has told the judge that the party under investigation lived in the box, because he had been expelled on the penultimate day in Mestalla, in the meeting in which Levante certified its continuity in First. "The week before the game we trained normally, trying to prepare the game. I was in the box because I was expelled and on the break I sneaked down and told them to squeeze a little more, which could be tied," he explained denying that he detected any behavior I miss his players "that made me think they wanted to lose." "We try to do everything possible to win," he said.
The former coach flatly denied the prosecutor's questions to know anything about the adjustment or that he had been offered an envelope with money . "Did you receive an envelope from the Levante players with money from Real Zaragoza and didn't want to take it in the locker room?" The prosecutor asked. Luis García has responded flatly with a 'no'.
